Here’s how to avoid the border-crossing blues

The December holidays are nearly upon us, and soon the roads will be filled with vehicles that are packed with excited families and friends rushing off to their various destinations in different provinces and neighbouring countries.

If you will be travelling out of the country , keep in mind that the borders will be just as busy as the roads leading to them.

Getting through border gates can be a stressful part of your journey – even more so if you don’t have the necessary documentation with you.

One of the most important aspects of preparing for your trip is to ensure that you have the right documentation to get yourself and your vehicle through the border, quickly and efficiently.

Now, we know that once the road trip’s excitement hits and the packing begin, it’s very easy to forget the essentials – and often, it’s the most important things that are forgotten.

One such thing is a border letter.

When planning a trip outside the borders of South Africa, having a border letter from your insurance company stating that your car is covered for the duration of the trip will assist you to have a hassle-free border crossing. It goes without saying, but as paying bribes is illegal, rather be over-cautious with the amount of documentation you bring along!

Because we understand that time isn’t always on our side when it comes to travel, MiWay gives you the #insurancefreedom to generate your own border letter. Simply log onto the MiWay website or MiWay App and with a few taps, you’ll be sorted and ready to hit the road.

Remember to check that your policy is up to date with the correct information, such as your vehicle’s VIN and registration number.

Also make sure that you have car insurance from a reputable company before you hit the road. This will ensure peace of mind for the duration of your travel.

Travel safely, and enjoy the break!
